AQA P1 - Physics

This is the Physics content for the Science A qualification (Core content)

The first unit of physics is split into 5 topics.


Lessons and resources

NEW REVISION RESOURCE - These are the key questions with exam style answers that you must learn to do really well in the exam:

Print out this Word Document to fill in with help from this Presentation with answers!

A list of all lessons for P1 and resources are on the left.

Go to the lesson you need and find notes, powerpoints, videos and quizzes.

Revise all the GCSE content using BBC Bitesize

OR

videos like those at my-gcsescience.com made by a real live science teacher (not me - but really good!! :))
